You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Great Church, warm and friendly. Morning Service was modern and attended by a good number. Family friendly with play provision for little ones and activities for older children. Recommended +++

I attended a couple of morning services when visiting in Taunton. I found the people in the church to be friendly and there was a lovely family atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this church.

Find Recycling Centres

Taunton Recycling Centre

Crown Industrial Estate, Taunton TA2 8QY, UK – 01823 338615

Friendly and helpful staff who often help you unload when the place is busy. Long queues can form on weekends, but move fairly quickly. There is a recycle store selling stuff too good to throw away from cycles to books to furniture all at reasonable prices.

Top Tip! Well organised and really helpful staff. A proper recycling centre with real focus on reusing items. Queuing to get in is unfortunate.

Somerset Waste

Raglan Mews, Middle St, Taunton TA1 1SH, UK – 01823 247999

We appreciate the fantastic work that the workers at Viridor Wellington Recycling Centre Do and are glad that many items are recycled also through our weekly rubbish collections. It has to be said though that Supermarkets should be made to use 50 percent less plastic food coverings because the burden on landfill must be extortionate! Please can something be done about it and then I will put five stars!!!!

Green Machine SW Ltd

486 Cheddon Rd, Taunton TA2 7QU, UK – 01823 336361

Efficient and affordable cleaning service for our local businesses office.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Kingston St. Mary

Wildwood

The Market House, Fore St, Taunton TA1 1JD, UK – 01823 217000

I had lunch with my husband here, it was a fairly simple salad and a burger so nothing special but it was very nice, the service was good, the place was clean and it was overall an enjoyable lunch. For my son's birthday he wanted to go here to eat something specific from their menu however I was unable to take him, I emailed the restaurant and they very kindly responded with the list of ingredients needed to make the meal myself and I had a very happy boy! Top marks to the staff for service both in house and on line!

Good restaurant with friendly staff. The backed brie and the wild mushroom risotto are good vegetarian options.

Castle Bow Restaurant

Castle Bow, Taunton TA1 1NF, UK – 01823 328328

Sadly the restaurant didn't have our booking, which was made several months in advance given that it was for a 60th birthday celebration, the excellent reputation of the restaurant and the time of year. Wine was very disappointing, very expensive, for supermarket quality products. Food wasn't very hot, however it was amazing. Service was lacking, more attention being paid to hotel guests, had to pour our own wine a couple of times, which shouldn't be the case in a restaurant of this calibre.

Really good cream tea! Nice and cosy place!

Augustus Restaurant

48 St James St, Taunton TA1 1JR, UK – 01823 324354

Taken by local family who love this place and i have to agree that the food is sensational and the wines are top quality. Their daily specials are usually great value (the rest of the menu is quite expensive) and its hard to resist a 3 course meal once you've tried the food.

Great food, went for Xmas party. Staff very friendly and helpful
